11 Amazing Authors Who Own Publishing Companies

Stephen Zimmer, Award-winning Author, Editor-in-Chief, Seventh Star Press, & Executive Director/Founder, The Imaginarium Convention

“Tell the stories that come from your heart and do not get caught up with trying to chase trends. By the time you are committed to pursuing a current trend, a new one is on the way to replace it, and you end up stifling your voice and style in the process. Along the same lines, do not be consumed with writing characters that you think others are expecting, but rather the ones that organically come from your imagination. The most important thing of all is to develop your own voice and style. Writing the stories that you are passionate about will always result in your best and most appealing work.”

Stephen Zimmer is an award-winning writer, editor, filmmaker, and broadcaster based out of Lexington, Kentucky. His published works include the Rayden Valkyrie Tales (Sword and Sorcery), The Ragnar Stormbringer Tales (Sword and Sorcery), the Rising Dawn Saga (Cross Genre), the Fires in Eden Series (Epic Fantasy), the Hellscapes short story collections (Horror), the Chronicles of Ave short story collections (Fantasy), the Harvey and Solomon Tales (Steampunk), and the Faraway Saga (YA Dystopian/Cross-Genre).
